Perhaps my gr-gr-grandfather had intended to emigrate, but he never did.  His eldest son did, in 1889, followed his two eldest daughters (including my gr-grandmother) in about 1891, and all the other siblings and his widow by 1900.  There was never any mention of any of them holding such a passport - my grandmother seemed to think that having had one was a point of pride.
